No way, that stuff stinks so bad.
Haha! I don't mind the smell.
by Vee
I LOVE them!

But, those tiny little bones they have scare me....so have not had any of late.
They're bones? Oh my gosh, all this time I thought achovies were "hairy fish" - which now I realise doesn't make sense because scales are removed so hair would be gone too! >.< Fail, Vee.
by Vee
Yup, and they hurt if they get into the wrong part of one's mouth too.....

Not to mention that would make them mammals.

My high school biology teacher would be ashamed of me. >.<

Yes ma'am!

Thank you very much, I say as I bookmark the page you have so kindly linked. (ღ˘⌣˘ღ)

I don't know. I have only eaten them once as a child and I absolutely hated them, but I haven't dried them since.
I hated them as a child as well, but I can't get enough of them these days.
by Vee
No :((( Fishy, fishy, fishy. I just don't like fish.
by Rice
Oh! Rice, what a shame, as your 'name' goes sooooo well with fish! Lol!

Used to be able to get in 80s a beautiful anchovy sauce, English, I think Mr Lee and Mr Perrins. Boy it was a great base for sooooooooooooo many dishes.A little put through some pasta like linguine a few prawns a few uncooked halved tiny tim tomatoes, handful of spinach leaves maybe a little fresh chilli, little garlic. Heaven, quick, light and very, very tasty.

Luv 'em!
Especially on Pizza!
I do too!
by Vee
No !!!!
There are foods you can not make without using them, such a pizza. All mine that I make a really deep dish, mushrooms, green peppers, green olives, anchovies, pineapple, ham, bacon, pepperoni,2 or 3 kinds of cheese and spices,onions,
My mouth is watering!
by Vee
Oh! Imars......I'll be there for Dinner, tonight, & I think Vee may come as well! Lol! Cheers...........
by donjo
Great. No cooking tonight! :D
by Vee
Absolutely love them and the are the bad for so many meals that I cook. Base for seafood linguine (garlic clove, 1 red chilli and about 6 anchovy fillets cooked til the fillets disappear) then go for whatever you want.
I love 1 little fillet on a slice of fresh bread with a lot of butter. Anchovy on lamb when roasting.
Could go on forever, just love the little things to bits
meant to write BASE not bad. No such thing as a bad little anchovy
by fran.
Haha, fran. Love it!
by Vee
Although I love the salty taste I only have them on pizza because I suffer with dry mouth so need to watch how many I eat
Fair enough, helga.
by Vee
Oh! helga, have you heard of 'biotene moisturising mouth spray'? It's a new product, & stops that awful 'dry mouth' feeling! I get it when I feel nervous, talking to people. It comes in various forms, but spray would be/is most convenient. Available at Pharmacy; not expensive.

Also when I eat salty food, I continuously sip cold water.
by donjo
No, the salt content on them is extreme. But when you buy them marinated in just oil (not in cans) they taste a lot better.
Yes, I love them! I even eat them straight from the bottle! I love them on pizza & in pasta recipes! I needed a couple of them for a recipe recently, & I’d run out! I just had 2 little empty bottles, 1/2 filled with the oil only, in the fridge door! When I went to buy some more from our local supermarket, but they only had them in the tins, so I didn’t buy them.
Only in Ceasar dressing
Yes, I love anchovies -had them last night cut very finely in the dressing of a salad with rocket and cheese
by Finy
Yes! I have mostly had them with tomato sauce either on pizza or in pasta sauce. When they are sauteed they do disappear, leaving umami flavour.
A restaurant I favour originally had a Popeye Pizza with spinach, caramelized onions and anchovies. Last time I went, it was not on the menu. Apparently it was not a popular choice!
Bugger. Haha. Sounds easy enough to make at home. Though I suppose that takes the fun out of eating out.
